January 2013 Birchbox Review

Birchbox is a monthly subscription program that sends beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products. It costs $10 a month to subscribe and the value of the box is usually double the cost of the box, although can vary from month to month.

My January Birchbox arrived slightly later than normal due to the length of time it took to ship. I’m not sure why the shipping took so long this time since it looks like my box went through its normal shipping route. Anyhow, here is what I received in my January box.

Aerie Shimmer Fragrance: This light-as-air blend of bergamot, peony, and vanilla feels fresh and warm.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentre: A favorite of models and makeup artists, this cult French moisturizer heals dryness and leaves skin primed for foundation.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner: This UK import features a user-friendly pen applicator and supersmooth formula.

Rut roh...forgot to take a picture of this!

Ojon rare blend oil Total Hair Therapy: This tricolored oil prevents heat damage and gives hair an instant shine boost. Before you apply, shake the bottle to blend the layers.

Beauty Extra
100% Pure Nourishing Body Cream: This skin-friendly moisturizer is made exclusively from 100 percent vegan, organic ingredients. Not that you need an excuse to slather it on.

So far, I’ve only tried the Ojon rare blend oil Total Hair Therapy. I believe I originally indicated in my Birchbox profile that I have damaged hair. I applied the oil to my hair after my morning shower just prior to blow drying. After my normal blow dry and flat iron routine, I noticed that my ends did look healthier but my hair still felt oily. Almost like when you go a couple of days without washing – a feeling I am not too fond of.

Here’s a Birchbox tip: After you receive your box, review your products on the Birchbox website and they will give you 10 Birchbox points for every product you review. Every 100 points can be redeemed for a $10 credit in the Birchbox shop. That’s how I purchase most of my full size items.
